Check video for 'fax receive set up' in similar model:
Manual receive: In coming call receives like telephone Fax/tele: Incoming call rings like telephone if its not fax, if incoming is fax it will entered in fax mode automatically Automatic: Incoming call converts in fax mode after ring count ends( ring to answer option also avail in fax set up mode rage 1-6 rings) Fax: Incoming calls straight away converts in to fax mode.( this option only for dedicated fax lines) Set up your best option as per your requirement.
check the phone line is properly connected and you are getting dial tone and dialing facility from the phone line which is connectd to fax line.go to menu option and choose the option fax and set the parameter like auto receive or manual set the ring auto answer mode after certain ring. If it is in auto receiving mode it will receive the fax after the ring which you set.
Check the answer mode, you should easily be able to see it in the display when in idle mode.
The CD is not needed for the machine to perform actions not requiring a computer, e.g. sending/recieving faxes.
Also, check the phone cable connection so that it's connected to the LINE outlet, and not the EXT one. Connecting it to the wrong contact would still make the machine ring (as it detects the "call" on the line) but unable to lift the call since the modem communicates only through the LINE port. You could troubleshoot by letting the machine be alone on the line to see if it can send and/or recieve faxes.
It is your phone answering machine that must pick up in three rings or less.
Therefore 4 is too much. I would not limit number for fax machine itself.
On receipt of fax sometimes seems like it will not work when answering machine picks up in the middle. However, leave it and it will work. Sometimes sender will hear your answering machine and cancel as well. So try to ensure they don't give up at other end as well.
Do you have a distinctive ring pattern in the same phone line
If no then you need to get a distinctive rig pattern from your service provider, which will differenciate the type of rings for phone and fax.
If you have a distinctive ring pattern make sure which one it has single rings, double rings, triple rings and double and triple rings.
To enable> First make sure auto answer in turned On
In setup/Menu go to > Rings to answer and set it to 5 or 6, and make sure the rings to answer in you answering machine set to 4(Always Should be lower then you rings to answer in the fax)
In Advance Fax setup> Then Ring pattern should be setup for the one which you service provider as given either double or triple Rings>
And the go to tools and run fax test and check what has failed
FAX RECEPTION THROUGH AN ANSWERING MACHINE: This mode is recommended for a shared fax and telephone line. To receive a fax if your All-In-One is connected to an answering machine: On the control panel, press Fax. Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the All-In-One does. For example, if you have set the answering machine to answer calls after 3 rings, set the All-In-One to answer calls after 5 rings. To change this setting on the All-In-One: Press Options until Number of rings appears. Press the right arrow (+) until After 5 rings appears. Press Select. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on. When a ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call. If a fax is detected, the All-In-One receives the fax, and disconnects the answering machine. If a fax is not detected, the answering machine completes the call.
Cannot figure how to hook up Canon MP830 all in one fax with remote answering machine. I can plug in phone line to send faxes fine but when hooked up in same hole and the phone rings it goes immediately to fax and can't receive phone calls. Maybe i have phone line hooked up in wrong place on my machine. The answering machine is in our master bedroom on the other side of the house. With my last a canon also i had it hooked up to go to fax after a certain amount of rings and it worked fine. That machine got fried by lightening and i replaced it with this machine. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong i really need this fax hooked up all the time for my business.
